Deepika Padukone will play the female lead in Prabhas’ upcoming film directed by Nag Ashwin. In an official announcement, the team welcomed the 'Padmaavat' actress on board. As news of this broke, many Prabhas fans expressed excitement over the Bollywood actress' presence in the movie.

 

But last year, Deepika courted controversy after supporting leftist students' union leader Kanhaiya Kumar at JNU in Delhi. This resulted in many right-wing supporters boycotting her most-talked-about film Chhapaak.

 

Also, right-wing activists vowed to boycott all of Deepika's projects, and their anger towards her is still fresh and alive in their minds. If the actress fails to change the status quo, she is likely to face backlash for the upcoming movie with Prabhas. This issue might have an adverse effect on his movie, causing few Prabhas fans some worry.
